Force 70HP Outboard Engine

Hi All
I am being offered a Force 70hp Outboard Motor, reported to be in "as new condition" but I am concerned as to the fact that I cant seem to find any or at least a limited amount of spare parts on line.
As our primary use of our boat is in Spainish waters,, my instinct is to keep clear of this motor ,,, can anyone give advise...
Thanks

Force?

Isn't fArce nearer reality?

Old 1970s Chrysler engines re-branded by Merc. Spares usually make hens' teeth look easy to find.

They used to be sold as a wonderful package with the great 'Binliner'. Lovely.
